- Resilience and Robustness
- Inspired Action and Intuition
- Team Work, Truth, Trust, Transformation and Taking Action
Real Team Building uses EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING CYCLE:
- Activity ACTION: Physcally, mentally & emotionally participate the designed activity
- Post Event REFLECTION: Review, Reflect an ReMind : Explore insights and lessons learned
- Real Life Application & INTEGRATION: Future pace and project how new learning can be used in daily life
- CONTINUATION: sustain changes against erosion
After people participate in an activity, they reflect on their experiences so as to highlight the lessons learned. This new learning is integrated into their work, or life. They make a change that is sustained in the face of strong erosive forces. If not carefully counteracted, the forces (lack of resources, old hurdles, peer pressure, etc.) tend to revert a person back to square one.

- Once clear of their own negative perspectives, beliefs and interpersonal issues, it makes it easier for each individual in the team to participate fully in identifying the importance, and benefits, of working together, rather than as lone individuals.
- The development of truth and trust within the group is of primary importance. Through various experiential exercises, trust issues and “static” is addressed and cleared, paving the way for stronger, safer, proactive, productive and resilient teams.

Bad Team Building can cause serious consequences including frustration, rivalry and resentment and loss of credibility… Here are key components that must be considered when deciding on your team building events and facilitators. Make sure to consider the following
- Event or activity Objectives must be clear: The Team Facilitators must clearly communicate instructions and activity objectives. Participants need to be able to fully understand the intentions and outcomes to fully benefit from professional team building events.
- Team Activities must be relevant to the workplace: Any activities undertaken on the team building event must be relevant to the workplace, and group. They need to reflect the real-life business problems that staff and management experience, in order for the process to offer viable learnings and solutions.
- Team Activities must be Safe & inclusive: The activities facilitated must be facilitated in a way that all participants are able to participate to equally. Everyone needs to be able to participate and process activities. If the facilitaro shames or embarasses anyone / team it can cause disastrous impacts. If anyone feels they are being excluded or discriminated against, it undermines the process and purpose of the entire experience.
